Diagnostic & Preventative Dentistry

Preventive dental care is necessary to maintain good oral health. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy may help to you to avoid high-cost procedures such as surgery, extractions, and root canals. Sage Dental offers numerous preventive dental treatments to keep your teeth healthy. It is recommended to visit your dentist twice a year to maintain good oral health. A checkup and cleaning should be scheduled every 6 months. It is important to detect problems early instead of only visiting the dentist when you are experiencing sensitivity or pain. Preventive care will safeguard your smile and save you from expensive dental procedures.

Checkups

The secret to beautiful, healthy teeth lies in consistent dental hygiene, regular brushing, and a routine dental exam. If you cannot remember the last time you had an annual checkup, you are likely way past due.

Preventive dental services are important, which is why Sage Dental encourages their patients to undergo routine dental maintenance treatments including exams, x-rays, and cleanings. Many people do not schedule a dental exam until they have cavities or other problems. What they fail to realize is that it is possible to prevent dental issues before they begin with semi-annual dental checkups, cleaning, and screenings.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are dental treatments used to prevent cavities and seal crevices in the teeth. Getting sealants for teeth can go a long way in fighting dental problems that may occur later in a child’s development.

Flouride Treatment

When it comes to achieving a beautiful smile, having a routine fluoride dental treatment should be part of your dental plan. Fluoride is used to prevent tooth decay by making teeth more resilient against plaque, bacteria, and sugars.

X-Rays

Dental x-rays are an integral part of a comprehensive treatment plan. In order to see the big picture, dentists require a dental radiograph, more commonly referred to as dental x-rays. These dental x-rays allow the dentist to get an in-depth look below the teeth and gums. For the convenience of our patients, Sage Dental performs on-site dental x-rays. With a proper dental radiograph, our team of dental professionals is able to give patients informed evaluations.

Dental issues such as cavities, wisdom teeth or cancerous or benign growths are not always visible to the naked eye. This is why dental x-rays are vital.

Gingivitis Treatment

According to research conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 53% of the U.S. population aged 20 years and older suffer from gingivitis.

Tooth Decay

Second, only to the common cold, tooth decay is one of the most prevalent disorders in the United States. Unfortunately, the effects of tooth decay can be significant and long-lasting. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, an estimated 92% of adults between the ages of 20 and 64 have tooth decay in their permanent teeth. Even more shocking, 23% of adults aged 20 to 64 have tooth decay that goes untreated. With startling statistics such as these, it is obvious why tooth decay treatment is imperative.

Tooth Sensitivity

According to Colgate.com, an estimated 57% of dental patients suffer from dentin hypersensitivity, better known as tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is a chronic condition that causes bursts of sharp pain within the teeth.
